NIGERIA AND THE QUEST FOR CREDIBLE ELECTION: LESSONS FROM THE 2011 NATIONAL VOTERS’ REGISTRATION EXERCISE

AUTHOR: EMMANUEL OSEWE AKUBOR

FROM: THE DIGNITY OF A FRENCH TEACHER: CELEBRATING PROF. JULIE AGBASIERE.

Voters Registration is one of the hallmarks of democratic election in any part of the world. This is done as a way of making for free, fair and transparent elections. In the case of Nigeria, the part of this electoral process has come under criticism, largely owing to the fact that it has been manipulated at one point or the other by those who should have protected its sanctity. This paper thus takes a look at how this has affected elections in the country as well as the faith of the people in the exercise, trying to draw lessons from the 2011 Exercise and the various manipulated processes by both politicians and the people since 2011.
